Swatches & Review - Shimmer Lucie and Carol!

Hi guys! 
Ready for more glitter? 
Today I've got Lucie and Carol to show you!








Let's check them out:
Lucie is a very bright and shiny silver glitter mix. It's got large and small silver glitter with a sprinkle of red and some blue/green iridescent goodness. This polish has a clear base but it is quite dense and can be worn on it's own if you want to. I layered 2 coats over one coat of Sinful colors Heavy metal just to give it a head start.

Wearing this polish made me really happy, it's so bright and bling!



























Carol is a lovely copper mix. It has copper and gold of different sizes and some large silver, black and blue glitter mixed in. Because it has this lovely contrasting blue glitter I thought I would layer it over a blue polish. Normally I would use the blue as an accent nail, but I thought I would change things up and use the blue as a main colour with the copper itself as an accent. The blue nails are 1 coat of Carol (I dabbed it a bit to get a nice spread of glitter) over 2 coats of China Glaze Manhunt . The copper nail is 2 coats of Carol over 1 coat of Renaissance custom lacquer Spadina, which is almost the exact same colour as the copper. Carol has a clear base and is best layered over another polish for an opaque result.

At first I didn't think I would like this one because I am not a big fan of gold, but I'm actually really fond of it! It has quite a lot of copper, so it's not to gold for me and the black and blue make it really interesting!




I hope you guys like all these sparkly glitters and see you next week!

  3. Thanks Angie, they really surprised me too.. the reason I swatched these first is because I always want to start with the boring, but after putting them on I felt completely different about them!

  5. Maybe they are micro flakes! But because of the creamy base they don't get as stuck to the nail as flakes usually do..
